The regime in Myanmar is killing, maiming, burning and raping the Rohingya Muslims. And the Hasina regime in Bangladesh is acting as a partner in this genocide, refusing to give them shelter and pushing them back at gun point to the hands of their killers, disregarding the command of Allah سبحانه وتعالى,
وَإِنْ اسْتَنصَرُوكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ فَعَلَيْكُمْ النَّصْرُ
“But if they ask you for help in respect of the deen, it is your duty to help them”
The regime claims that its actions are for protecting the national security of the country from these defenceless people! What nation? What national security? RasulAllah ﷺ said, «المسلمون أمة واحدة من دون الناس» “Muslims are one Ummah to the exclusion of all others.” The idea of nation state is a Kufr concept. Islam forbids nationalism; there is no place in Islam for the idea that Muslims be divided along national/ethnic lines, each having their own state, one for the Bengalis, one for Pakistanis, another for the Syrians and another for Jordanians, etc. Muslims are one Ummah, they are to have one state, their land is one, their war is one and their peace is one… Thus when the Muslims of Afghanistan come under enemy attack for example, the Muslims of Pakistan have to come in their defence. And likewise, when the Muslims of Arakan are under attack the Muslims of Bangladesh have to come in their defence…
However, claiming to “protect national security” is a smokescreen in any case. Not long ago Sheikh Hasina declared her support for India against Pakistan over the issue of Kashmir. What was the national security imperative in that case? The truth is that the Hasina regime by its nature is an enemy to Islam and the Muslims. Sheikh Hasina and her regime are fighting Islam and Muslims inside the country. So it is nothing unexpected from them to hand over the Rohingya Muslims to the enemy.
What is required to save and protect your Rohingya brothers and sisters is mobilizing the Bangladesh military for Jihad under the leadership of the Khilafah in order to liberate Arakan from the belligerent regime in Myanmar and the thuggish Buddhist monks. Rallying and making demands to this regime to come to their aid is of no benefit. Instead of making demands to this regime (or the UN or the international community), what you must do is to demand from the military officers to remove this regime and transfer the authority to Hizb ut Tahrir to establish the Khilafah. This is the demand that you ought to make in your rallies and meetings. Your demand has to be to the cantonments, not the government. And you have to also convey this demand to the officers that you are acquainted with, the officers who are your family members, relatives and friends… Meet with them, put pressure on them to act and increase the pressure upon them. Establishing the Khilafah is what will solve the problem from the root and it is the effective durable solution. Otherwise the aggressors will keep launching their aggression upon them every time they feel like and the deaf-dumb-blind regime here will keep pushing them back to the hands of the aggressors. We have seen before the same situation that we are seeing now.
RasulAllah ﷺ said, «إِنَّمَا الْإِمَامُ جُنَّةٌ يُقَاتَلُ مِنْ وَرَائِهِ وَيُتَّقَى به» “Only the Imam (the Khaleefah) is a shield, from behind whom one would fight, and by whom one would protect oneself.” [Sahih Muslim]
The Khilafah state is the only state that ever protected the Muslims. You have in the history of this region an example of that. In 711 CE, when a group of Muslim traders were sailing in the Indian Ocean from Ceylon near the coast of Sindh, their ship was looted and they were captured and taken prisoners. The news reached the capital of the Khilafah and Khaleefah Walid bin Abdul Malik instructed his governor Hujjaj bin Yusuf to demand compensation from the ruler of Sindh and rescue the Muslims. An army was dispatched led by one of the most brilliant sons of the Ummah, the young general Muhammad bin Qasim. When the Khilafah’s army reached Debal (near modern day Karachi), Muhammad bin Qasim presented his demands to Raja Dahir. The Raja resisted the demand and was defeated by the Muslims and his kingdom was captured. This event then became a catalyst for Fateh al-Hind. What a contrast to the Hasina regime which pushes the Muslims into the sea to perish!
O Sincere Officers in the Bangladesh Military!
RasulAllah ﷺ was performing tawaf around the Ka’ba saying, «مرحبا بك من بيت ما أعظمك، وأعظم حرمتك، وللمؤمن أعظم عند الله حرمة منك» “…How great and exalted you are! How great and exalted your sanctity is! But by Him in Whose Hand is Muhammad’s soul, the sanctity of a believer’s blood and property in the sight of Allah is greater than your sanctity!” [Targhib wa’l Tarhib of Imam al-Mundhiri, 3/276]
It is your duty to protect this sanctity of the Muslims’ blood and property. Overthrow this regime at once and transfer the authority to us; the honorable Ameer of the Hizb will assume the post of the Khaleefah and lead you in Jihad to liberate your brothers and sisters. Are you not hearing the cries of your brothers and sisters? Are you not seeing the shedding of their blood and destruction of their properties? Do you not feel their pain? Do you not have any feeling of love and affection towards them? We know you do indeed love your brothers and sisters, you do feel their pain, and you are seeing their plight and hearing their cries. Therefore do not betray yourselves. Nor deceive yourselves with the false excuse that you have to be loyal to the constitution and perform only the duties that are assigned by the government. This constitution is not worth the piece of paper it is written on, the regime which drafted this constitution does not even abide by it. Break free from the shackles of the regime which sends you to UN missions in the name of peacekeeping in far lands and yet it does not command you to protect your brothers and sisters next-door. Do not have any fear of what the consequences might be, put your trust in Allah سبحانه وتعالى and you will be successful insha’Allah.
وَمَنْ يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بَالِغُ أَمْرِهِ قَدْ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدْرًا
“And whoever puts his trust in Allah, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allah will accomplish his purpose. Indeed Allah has set a Qadr for all things.”
O Allah! Raise some courageous men among the officers of this country who receive this call of ours and respond to it, to free our brothers and sisters from the enemy and free us from the tyranny of tyrant Hasina. Ameen
